Software Programming Applications that support the DVD-ROM

Currently, the following software applications support the RadioReference DVD-ROM for importing data directly from the DVD-ROM

  • PSREdit500 For the PSR-500/PSR-600/Pro-106/Pro-197
  • PSREdit300 For the PSR-300/PSR-400/Pro-163/Pro-164/Pro-97/Pro-2055
  • PSREdit100 For the PSR-100/PSR-200

Known Issues

  • We've received some reports that users when loading the DVD-ROM for the first time get an error message such as:
Error=>Table 'cdrom_rrdb.country_list' doesn't exist

or

Error=>Can't connect to MySQL server on '127.0.0.1' (10061)

If you receive this error message, check and try the following:

  • Make sure you aren't running any security software that might block the application from copying files to your computer.
  • Be patient when loading the DVD-ROM for the first time. It takes about 1 minute (longer on some machines) for the DVD-ROM to copy files to your hard drive. If you interrupt this process you may experience the above message and have to clean up your temp files.
  • Clean out your TEMP files, reboot, and try to load the DVD-ROM again. To clear out temp files, open My Computer and Right-Click on your C Drive and choose properties. Then click the “Disk Cleanup” button. Check the box “Temporary Files” and then choose OK. Make sure you check “Temporary Files” and not “Temporary Internet Files” - then click OK to run the disk cleanup. Then reboot. and go ahead and try to rerun the DVD-ROM.

Tips and Tricks

Running the DVD-ROM from the hard drive

  • If you want to run the DVD-ROM locally on your machine without having to insert the disc each time you need to access the content, simply copy the entire DVD-ROM contents to a folder on your hard drive and execute the "RunCD.exe" file in the folder.
